    Free Unlimited Storage On Google Photos Ends On June 1st

    At Google Photos, users currently get unlimited storage for high quality photos. Now from June 1, the company will give only 15 GB of storage to the user. That is, in such a space, the user has to store photos and videos.  Users have to pay for more space. About 1400 rupees will have to be spent for a year plan. However, users who have a model of Pixel 2 or later will get unlimited space.

    In an official blog post, the company said, “this change also allows us to keep pace with the growing demand for storage. And, as always, we uphold our commitment to not use information in Google Photos for advertising purposes. We know this is a big shift and may come as a surprise, so we wanted to let you know well in advance and give you resources to make this easier.”

    Google had already announced last year that, any high quality photos and videos you upload to the service will count towards a 15GB limit after June 1st. Presently, Photo service provides unlimited storage for high quality media files, which are slightly less than original quality. 

    Storage is only limited for files uploaded in original format. Google One storage plans will be required after June 1 if you exceed 15GB in photo uploads and Workspace files. The cloud service costs $2 a month for 100 GB, $3 a month for 200 GB and $10 a month for 2 TB. 

    The good news is that photos or videos uploaded in High quality before June 1st, 2021 will not count against your free 15GB storage. In simple words, we will still consider all photos and videos uploaded before that date to be free and to be extra exempt from the storage limit.
